Australia

Whether you’re Australian business looking to expand overseas or foreign investor setting up a business or subsidiary in Australia, you will be faced with a number of challenges.

Management must navigate a complex web of local tax laws including; income tax, indirect taxes and double tax treaties. In addition to these day to day compliance matters, broader tax issues will also arise such as thin capitalisation, transfer pricing and capital gains tax.  The penalties for non-compliance can be substantial.
Resolving these issues at the outset can lead to significant savings in the long term, from reduced taxation, avoiding penalties by ensuring compliance with local laws, making you aware of potential costs and eliminating delays in establishing the subsidiary.
